Every time I try tackling a jigsaw puzzle it ends with me angrily stuffing a half-completed puzzle back in its box and convincing myself that the manufacturer forgot to include a piece (the missing piece inevitably turns up under the sofa). Unlike me, furniture designer Rupert McKelvie saw errant pieces as an opportunity and decided to build a set of furniture made out of puzzle pieces. The collection, which McKelvie calls Missing Pieces, is a real testament to his patience. Case in point: The table alone is made up 4,800 pieces.
